Unhappy removed paneling, wall needs help

We removed paneling that was installed directly on to the drywall. There was no primer on drywall, so when we removed the panelling it left thick strips of liquid nails or peeled the paper of the dry wall.

What would the preferred fix?
I don't want to put 1/4 drywall on top.
How about plastering over?
What tools are needed?

If there is no real deep damage then you will get away with hanging some "lining" paper although this is not ideal if you are only wanting to paint the wall after. If you are going to use wallpaper make sure the lining paper runs horizontally as this wont lift at the edges when hanging the finishing paper.

If you are wanting to just pain the wall then you may want to consider "skimming" with a plaster top coat. For this you only need simple tools consisting of a mixing bucket and a plasterers Float.

Happy floating....
